Only works in a massive swell. Exposed beaches need to be 6-8ft or more. Usually a last resort. Also need a very low tide. Can only surf Lundy for one hour either side of low. Big swells coincide with storms so the walk down is likely to be very muddy and wet. Expect to get soaked.
Lundy is rarely woth surfing as there are heaps of places more accessible. Most of the waves close out and the locals don't like visitors. Be prepared to get dropped in on and verbally abused.
If you do decide to surf here this is very important.
DO NOT LEAVE ANYTHING IN YOUR CAR.
Take it with as there are lots of thiefs around. These are not surfers as many locals have had gear stolen. Unfortunately this applies to many of the remote spots in Cornwall.

Alex - Im not a local but i surf polzeath regularly. A few weeks ago this July polzeath was completely blown out. 12ft+ and impossible to paddle out. Had a feeling lundy might be going off and god i was right. 30 guys including Bunty and Russel Winter all surfing 6 - 8ft gems peeling off the headland on the right. Probably the best days surfing i've ever had in cornwall. Really sucky, full of power and so clean.
